The Luxury wide range of tubs offers more generous width (around 4 additional inches) for improved bathing comfort and enjoyment. These tubs, also include an integrated drain overflow which removes the need for drain hardware to be evident on the exterior of the tub.
This 'Calypso-ACH73' is a simply stunning 73" long LUXURY WIDE French Bateau clawfoot tub in bright white interior and a fabulous Aged Chrome exterior. To protect the exterior, we apply four layers of high grade clear lacquer. To complete the 'Calypso-ACH73' package, we include either an 'Empire' British Telephone style tub filler or our more modern 'Expo' goose-neck tub filler, plus a pop-up drain and Medici, ball and claw or lion paw feet. The feet are supplied unattached from the tub to allow for ease of movement and they are simple to install.
Tub and Fittings Care and Maintenance
The high gloss acrylic and painted surfaces are very simple to maintain. To clean the exterior, just wipe with a soft damp cloth. For interior cleaning, we recommend a hot, damp soapy soft cloth, we don't recommend anything abrasive. Never use bleach, ammonia or any scouring powders on either the tub or the fittings, these will cause damage.
For serious stains inside your tub, we recommend a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser sponge pad.
